The Visitor Centre at Stonehenge is located over a mile from the stones. This is your entry point to Stonehenge and the place where you pay for or show your tickets and buy your souvenir guides.

The Visitor Centre also offers a modern exhibition with prehistoric objects on display, and a spacious café and gift shop.

A Stonehenge shuttle transports you between the Visitor Centre and Stonehenge (included in your ticket price).

Special Access Visits to Stonehenge

How close to the stones you can get at Stonehenge during public opening hours
How close to the stones you can get at Stonehenge during public opening hours

During normal opening hours you cannot walk up to the stones themselves. The nearest you will get to the stones is about 10 yards, the monument being roped off by a low barrier (see picture below).

However it is possible to walk up to and among the stones at Stonehenge outside public opening hours. These are called Special Access visits. During these sessions of one hour duration, only 26 people are allowed onto Stonehenge going beyond the barriers and walking amongst the stones.

The fact that these Stonehenge Special Access visits are outside public opening hours mean that they are at dawn or evening. Given that Stonehenge is two hours' drive from London this obviously provides logistical issues in getting there.

The Special Access Visits are also immensely popular, demand far outstrips supply and they are often sold out months in advance.

We have dedicated pages for people independently wanting to partake in a Stonehenge Special Access Visit and also pages on the various London based companies (such as Premium Tours) that offer Stonehenge Special Access Tours from London.
